About the exhibition :: Drawing from their teaching collections, nine Bay Area professors/instructors chose books, objects, and creative assignments from their personal libraries to share in one exhibition. By presenting different teaching approaches through their selections, these educators shed light on their philosophies as well as their passions. Individual collections provided by each instructor reflected different themes; collection examples included books as a historical timeline, top ten student favorites, and books with an emphasis on language and culture. Over forty artists' works were included, highlighting a wide variety of processes and materials.
